Found loads of articles on the protective effects of the combo's in all types of oxidative

stress/cell damage. So I was wanting to know if anyone else takes this in addition to other

antioxidants that may help protect the organs.

Sometimes in life you have great and exciting experiences, one of which is discovering new

things. It's like opening a door to a new house and walking down a hallway only to find many more

doors that open to wondrous rooms filled with beautiful things of all types. Vitamin E is such

a discovery, and after 80 years, only parts of its function are beginning to be understood.


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17873355
The present study was carried to evaluate the protective effects of melatonin alone and vitamin

E with selenium combination against high dose cadmium-induced oxidative stress in rats. In

conclusion, vitamin E + Se, melatonin and vitamin E, and Se, in addition to MLT combinations, had

protective effects against high dose cadmium-induced oxidative damage.

A daily dose of 10 mg melatonin shows a slowly developing antioxidant profile in patients with

arthritis and increases the concentrations of some inflammatory indicators, but these effects

are not associated with any change of proinflammatory cytokine concentrations or clinical symptoms.

Can't melatonin help bring some hair color back?

Since getting sick and doing treatment I've lost a lot of hair and my hair has a dead look to it now.

Anyone have any suggestions : )
I used to be so darn cute

Hair loss is common in low thyroid.
Melanin and Melatonin are not the same thing.

The mela means dark.

Nite hormone melatonin and dark pigment melanin.

My doctor just reviewed with me that it is very important and maybe even a huge link for use sick people to find the right antioxidant formula.

He will be doing testing for oxidative stress and will recommend a special formula that has proven results..

From what I understand.

Anyway. at my next appt he said he should be set up for testing for patients and we will see how that goes and what will be prescribed.

Anyway.. This sujbect has been coming up alot lately. I am wondering why.. Is there a new wave of interest or an older idea coming back up??

Not that I know of. I am just looking to find what

may help me in preventing the biofilm. I already do

Nystatin 4 a day and added the E slowly uping the

last month, and think the melantonin may act as a

booster in the metabolization of the E. Or rather

the reaction I want from the E. Must be careful

with it though if you take blood thinners. As it

is a natural thinner also. Per literature.

I take melatonin, vit E and selenium, and a lot of other things.

But someone said we aren't supposed to take melatonin all the time , to prevent dependence on it? Is that true? Is there enough research? So i take melatonin part of the time. Also half the time i sleep well without it, and seem to need it as a sleep booster cyclicly if the insomnia gets bad.

Dr C in Mo and my daughter's PCP both said you can take melatonin on a regular basis. My concern was if your body would stop making it naturally, but they said that wasn't the case. My D has been on it for years along with other sleep aids.

I agree with your doc. I was wondering also if any suggested additions to boost activity at the cellular level. Does she take more than 10mg?
